My Thoughts On Will & Patrick Wake Up Married by Leta Blake, Alice Griffiths

Will & Patrick Wake Up Married serial, Episodes 1 - 6
Cover from Goodreads

Let me tell you I sure wasn’t planning to review this series, in fact, I didn’t even realize that I was reading a whole series until I was on book 4. I think the authors gave the bundle at some point. Something that grabbed me right away was that Will, one of the main characters, is diabetic and are my parents.

I honestly can understand what life looks like when your parent has to check their sugar levels for x times per day. Everyone in my family keeps an eye for the signs and what to do if it happens. Will is an alcoholic, but I liked how the authors dealt with it because they give the point of view of what path led him to be that.

On the other hand, we see Patrick, who rejects that he is on the autism spectrum because he’s scared that he will be seen just as autistic if he opens up about it. Which coming from someone whose disability is visible and it can’t be hidden. People sometimes see me as my disability, not for myself. On top of that, I sense some ableism when it comes to accepting all of himself. Painting the image of the perfect doctor.

The only book I haven’t read from the series is the novella that came out last year because I haven’t found it yet. I tend to rate the books that I read by gut insisting, and I gave each book 3 stars for now. However, I gave 5 stars to the series as a whole, which is why I might end up giving each book 4 stars.
